Hi Jeep. The fact is if everyone on display is black and the people being invited to touch are all white then imo it is a race exhibit. I'm not saying anyone who would want to touch is racist or uneducated. I'm saying I think it is disrespectful to put people on public display solely based on their race like they are an anomaly. . I also don't think your being white is the end all for your perspective. Everyone here is an individual. Im not the spokesperson for blacks. I speak for only me. As you can see there are black people in this discussion who disagree with me and white people who agree with me. I think these exchanges of ideas are great.
My experience is that unless she can't stand you if a black woman you know reasonably well gets that upset over a little r hair touching that isn't excessive or ruining her style my money says she is likely wearing a weave. You probably aren't interested in touching that. Those things are expensive and some women won't let even their so touch them. But if we ever meet I promise to let you feel me up hair wise Lol. You might be disappointed because my hair just feels like hair. Unless I overdo it with the protein.
